PS4 Single Left-Handed Controller (part 1 of 7)
« on: December 30, 2019, 09:44:58 AM »


I had a request to make a custom PS4 Left handed Joystick for a person who is recovering from a "Stroke", thought it would be interesting reference.
Above is just a first a first bite of the cherry, subject to many/many changes.

First step (above)  :- create a cradle for the main board to sit in, then grow everything out from that.
To follow a nifty handle.... with viewport for board....

....and its kinda ergo...

I am using as a base, the internals of a  "Hori Wired mini Gamepad"  its a PS4 Official Licensed Product, the circuit board within is very small, which is why I went for this version.
First problem was decoding the Human Interface Device signals, i.e. what button affects what part of the USB packet.





After fluffing around and installing "Device Monitoring Studio" to make this easier.... not!!!!

.....so plumped for a much esier solution using GroG's MyRobotLab.

Now using the joystick service I have a reference and test platform for developing the rest of the Joystick.



Here is what the internals look like (long photo motage), best thing is that the silk screen text explains what is what... winwin.
